Our Model of Training
At Ascension Genesys Hospital, our Clinical Health Psychology program is embedded in our medical primary care residency programs (Family Medicine and Internal Medicine, OB/GYN). Since 1987, the core of our fellowship program has been to train psychology fellows alongside their medical colleagues. The psychology fellows are able to lend their expertise to and teach the medical resident in the learning of behavioral issues related to disease and health. Likewise, the medical resident has a role in teaching the psychology fellow more about medical diagnoses and treatment so that the psychologist can be a more effective colleague.
